Mini Break Happy Times

We just celebrated the Queen's Birthday with a long weekend here in Australia & my family & I had the pleasure of going away with some great friends. We arrived at the fabulous old Bandon Grove School House on Friday evening & stoked up the open fire while we waited for the rest of the crew to arrive. This is the second year running that we have visited this place & it didn't disappoint.
The photo below is of my husband & daughter setting up a fire to roast some early morning marshmallows.
Below is the view from my bed, looking out to the cows grazing in the neighbour's paddock.
Stoking up the fire on arrival.
Our turn to cook Saturday night, we made two massive paellas.
We stripped our citrus trees before we left home, taking along delicious fresh oranges, limes & loads of mandarins.
On the drive out of town I dropped in two skirts to local shop Mooch Inside, hot of the machine! 
A great weekend of conversation with true friends, fresh air & way too much delicious food. Good for the soul.
